Why won't web pages show in dark mode and are still white. So far the only browser I have seen that will also darken a web page is the standard Samsung browser. Love Firefox on my computer but on a tablet the darkening of web pages from the bright white is crucial. How can this be fixed?

Problem: keyboard covers text area in chat and scroll does not function. In a chat with customer service usually, the text I am writing does not appear, it is behind the keyboard and scroll is frozen. I have to close the keyboard to see the text, also scroll works. Then I click on my partially filled text box, keyboard comes back covering it, no scroll. Repeat. Pixel 6, FF for Android, T-mo, Ad-Guard only addon, everything updated, see attached.

(using 118.2.0) At times the navigation icons and the reload icon disappear from the task bar. When I go into Settings and then back to the browser page the icons are gone. They are still in the "3 dot" menu. The only way I have found to reappear them is to close the app (go into android task list and "swipe" it closed) and reopen it.

Any ideas/suggestions?

I am posting this issue at the request of E from Firefox's app developer feedback after I submitted an app review.

The app continues to be unstable on my Pixel 6a (latest OS, Android 13) after freezing up on what appears to be any heavily scrolled pages or those that create a heavy cache. This freezing then causes abrupt phone restarts shortly thereafter, but not always immediately. Usually the culprit seems to be linked to Facebook album viewing, Imgur albums with article-length descriptions, etc. The abrupt phone restarting occurs whether force stopping Firefox and clearing the cache right away or not (although the restarts seem to happen faster if I force stop the app). I have simply closed the app during the freeze, put my phone down, and come back minutes or hours later to it having restarted on its own.

In addition, open tabs have a tendency to lose their scroll spots on a non-infinitely-scrolling page (e.g. an article not requiring expanding) when the app is minimized but not closed. This is probably unrelated(?) and isn't as critical as the spontaneous restarts, however.

It looks like many Pixel 6a users have had this issue, although those support threads from 8-9 months ago have now been archived. Someone else mentioned scripts from the websites themselves may be to blame? Would be curious to hear of any specific fixes. Thanks!

Pull to refresh causing a noticable delay on Android

When you first released the pull to refresh feature on Android, it worked good. However, for the last several releases, there is a noticeable delay when trying to scroll up and down. Say you are in the middle of a news article and you want to move up or down. It will just hang for a bit, rather than smoothly go up and down like normal. If I turn pull to refresh off, scrolling is normal. What I think might be happening is the pull to refresh feature is no longer recognizing to only work when at the top of a page. The only time you would want to pull down to refresh is at the top of the article. Otherwise, it shouldn't even be active. Don't really know what the real problem is though. It is a real bummer. I really like that feature. Having to go back to the old way of refreshing a page is super annoying. I hope you can figure it out. This issue has been going on for several releases/months. I didn't know how to report it. Perhaps the last three releases have had the issue.

In the past, I could search for a business and the green phone would pop up on it and I could push it and it would open in my call/dial pad. Now it won't. When you click on it in the android mobile version it initially seems like it wants to load but immediately stops and does nothing. Am fully updates, full permissions, and cache/cookies cleaned since this started. Is there any other settings I should be looking at?

The keyboard when using Firefox Android on my Galaxy S24+ suddenly disappears then starts opening and closing and eventually I'm left with the a blank space where the keyboard sits but I can type on the blank area and the keyboard responds with characters. Eventually I have to repeatedly close Firefox Android to get it to operate correctly. Clearing the keyboard app (Samsung) seems to help.
